Low T Prevalence

Approximately 2.4 million men age 40 to 49 have low T levels, with a new diagnosis of about 481,000 androgen deficiency cases a year. Other estimates propose a hypogonadism prevalence of about 13 million American men.[2] Low T levels are associated with aging; an estimated 39% of men 45 or older have hypogonadism, resulting in low T levels.[1]
